CTC Loaf

This CTC (Clean The Cupboard) loaf was created to use up some grains and take advantage of the oven-dried tomatoes from the days big harvest.

The formula was something like this:

  • 100g farro
  • 100g WW flour
  • 400g Bread flour
  • 150g white flour levain - mild 100% H
  • 150g rye flour levain - sour 100%H
  • unknown quantity of oven-dried tomatoes and grated parmesan.
  • sesame and chia seeds

Was really delicious and with additional oven-dried tomatoes slathered on was a meal in itself.

make for some of the best inspiration. Nice work!

Was the farro ground, soaked or cooked?

@Cathy - I decided to grind it. That was actually my biggest question on ingredients. But I decided if I ground 100g I could be pretty safe in my formula.

Thanks for the comment!

I call mine my “lowtide” loaf.  It’s never looked as good as yours, though.  Nice bake!

Marcus appreciate the kind words. I like "lowtide", might borrow that occasionally. Switch up the names as the ingredients switch.
